Battlecruisers aren't on par with others.

General Discussion
Stop listening to GSL pros and make a carrier/brood lord for our race.

People who go mass battle cruisers need to GG as it is a horrible composition against all 3 races.

Balance should be stable for all players not just MLG champions.

I don't play at 300 apm, i play at 20 and am in wood league.
Thor's and Bc's need a buff
OK, I'll make the BC as good as a carrier for you.

Build time increased to 120
HP reduced to 450
GtA damage reduced to 6
Armor reduced to 2
Energy bar removed, alongside Yamato gun and behemoth reactor
Cooldown increased to .45, 150/150 research reduces it back to .225
Fusion Core cost increased to 300/200

Differences include: Doesn't spawn inteceptors to mess with AI of enemy anti air units.
Armor affects a larger portion of health.
Doesn't spawn with half of it's damage output missing.
Costs 50 more gas for 100 less total minerals, assuming you never have to remake any interceptors after the first 8.
BC damage is less vulnerable to armor and guardian shield effects.
BC has less range then carrier, with no ability to shoot while moving.
BCs are prone to overkill whereas carriers are not, the further the BC is away from a target the more shots will be wasted due to the BC's super fast attack rate and low missile travel time in comparison.

Lemme know if I missed anything.

The big one is the increased range.


Perhaps BCs should have increased range vs ground.
BL>>BC>carrier At least you're not toss.

and a 25% dps increase vs ground incoming for HotS.

That changed has been removed from current plans.
